(RISE)

Back again on my knees
I thought of you
I've never cried so happy

When I breathe out, you breathe me back
The greatest gift I got is you
When I smile my thoughts are on you

(No death, no life, no time) Will take me away
(No death, no life, no time) Will take me away
(No death, no life, no time) Will take me away

When it's quiet
I know you're there
To my God:
GLORY

(No death, no life, no time) Will take me away
(No death, no life, no time) Will take me away
(No death, no life, no time) Will take me away

Always seeming two thieves at my side
But in you I keep my eyes
You're all I want

RISE

Always seeming two thieves at my side
But in you I keep my eyes
You're all I want

God be pleased
This world has nothing to offer anymore, come back soon

This world has nothing to offer, come back soon
This world has nothing to offer, come back soon
This world has nothing to offer, come back soon
This world has nothing to offer, come back soon

Welcome...
Welcome back

    General CommentVery simple. He's alone, he's going wrong, then God comes into his life and saves him. However, the evils of the world persist, and this is a cry for divine help to steady the path.

    General CommentHis words could very well be directed at us as an illustration of what the purpose of having the ability to freely choose to love God is. Our weakness becomes His power.

    General CommentI see this as him jsut crying out to God to come back. He will come back again, & this song's basically saying "Ok, you can come back now, the world isn't that great, just come back"
    At least that's how it is.
